IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: NITYA VIDYASAGAR - ACTRESS

Rate this Entry

Leela
The long-running children's television show Sesame Street celebrates its 40th year on PBS this year. I was one of those toddlers that watched the show when it debuted and I'm glad the show was around when my own kids were young. Aside from all the great muppet creations on the show, there have been a lot of great "people" cast members as well. Some have been on the show since the early years. And many others have been introduced in the decades since.

One of the nice things about Sesame Street is that its cast members are diverse like America is. And one of the newest actors on the show is Nitya Vidyasagar who plays Leela on the show. Nitya was born in Oman of Indian parents. She immigrated to the US at age 12 and has been a stage actress for several years.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    My name is S.Aran, I am a representative of Dream Activist where we are currently conducting a massive awareness and recruitment campaign in order to garnish support for the Dream Act.

    I am an undocumented student, and find it extremely difficult to pursue my college education due to a status I inherited from my parents. Being brought to the United States at the age of 12, raised and brought to an American lifestyle, to graduating high school in 2007 at the top of my class. The DREAM Act would help me, and students in my situation, realize our dreams of becoming active members of society by allowing us to attend school or join the military.

    Currently we have a project going on at CHANGE.ORG, a website that will present the top 10 ideas that it generates to the Obama administration upon its inauguration. The members of your organization are more than welcome to vote on our idea in order to keep it in the top 10. Heres a link to the site:

    ??????????????? http://www.change.org/ideas/view/pass_the_dream_act_now

    YOUR BLOG, is probably the most invaluable tool you have in order to help us.
    Starting January 5th, the site and voting polls will re-open and we will need as many votes as possible in order to defeat our opposition; in which, we have only 10 days to gather enough votes so that our idea move forward and get presented to the Obama administration upon inauguration. There will be a widget that you can post on your blog to allow your readers to vote on our cause, and do not forget to make a post public for viewing and circulate it far and wide.

    Another project we would like for you to be involved is the petition we will have online as of January 21 (www.dreamact2009.com). This petition is being hosted by DreamACTivist and the United We DREAM Coalition, in which we will aim to gather 65,000 signature by March 1st of this year.

    Remember that is now a new year, this is our time to bring the Change that was promised to us. Let us work together towards a common goal, and enjoy the role we play in society as activists and advocated for not only immigrants, but education as a whole.

    Please, let me know if you are interested, as the more help we get the better and faster our mission can get accomplished. If you have any questions surrounding the bill, or anything in relation to DO NOT HESITATE to contact me at this email address.

    Hope we can keep in touch.
    Thanks for your attention.

    Sincerly,



    S.Aran?
